The regional awards acknowledge excellence in manufacturing and the roof tile company was awarded for its Burton-on-Trent factories. It will now go on to represent the Midlands in the Large Manufacturer of the Year category of the Made in the UK Awards in July.
The awards were organised by media company Insider. Kurt Jacobs, editor of Midlands Business Insider and one of the awards’ judges, said: “Russell Roof Tiles really impressed our panel of judges. [This year’s] judges were particularly stringent so to be shortlisted was an achievement in itself. Then to win the big prize of the night was a major indicator of just how highly they rated Russell Roof Tiles. This was an entry that ticked all the boxes of what a class manufacturing outfit should be.”

It’s the first time in Russell Roof Tiles’ 50 years that it has been recognised with an award for manufacturing. The company was also commended for its resilience in weathering one of the worst recessions to hit the construction industry while at the same time increasing its market share.

Andrew Hayward, managing director at Russell Roof Tiles, said: “This accolade is a testament to the ongoing hard work and dedication of our head office and manufacturing teams at both of our Burton-on-Trent factories. I’m delighted that we have been recognised as being ?best in class’ and a top UK manufacturer. What a way to mark our anniversary year.”

Russell Roof Tiles is this year celebrating 50 years at its Lockerbie plant and 25 years in Burton-on-Trent.
